Creating an Art Department Library

Several of us from NCCU SLIS met with Dr. Abdellahi and Professor Debela to talk about organizing a departmental library for NCCU’s Art Department. It was an interesting meeting, and I left the hour-long meeting excited about the experience and the possibilities for the library. Our first step will be to do some research about other libraries’ art collections, which will be a lot of fun! Tamara‘s going to set up a Google Group so we can stay organized with our progress and communications about this neat project! Stay tuned!

    You linked to my blog! Awesome! Now you’ll have to tell me how you did that. lol I’m still learning.
    I’m especially stoked because I want to start a library from the ground up like this in a Spanish-speaking country one day, so this will be great practice!

      I was wondering if/how you’d notice! 🙂 To link to something, highlight the word or words you want to be linked to a website, then click on the Link icon in the toolbar. (It’s to the right of the “right align” icon.) A box will pop up, and you just copy and paste the URL into the top box. There’s a box below the URL box for a title if you want to give the URL a different title from the words you’re highlighting. (That’s optional, though.) There’s a little check box underneath that, that you can check if you want the URL to open in a new page.

      I’m stoked about the art department library too! I think we have a great group of SLIS students working on it too!
